2nd Annual Rock A Mile In Her Shoes

We’ve all heard the expression ‘walk a mile in someone’s shoes’, but does anyone ever taken it literally? In order to raise money and awareness for Crisis Services Advocate Program (CSAP), a special concert is being held at Lockhouse Distillery & Bar this Saturday, April 16, starting at 7:30pm. The premise behind the event is that the band members will be wearing heals, in order to bring attention to the worthy cause. 

CSAP offers free and confidential response and support to women who have suffered at the hands of sexual and domestic violence. The concert is just one way to show that the issue is on the table (on stage), and in the spotlight. 

Walk A Mile In Her Shoes literally asks men to walk a mile in women’s shoes.

Aside from band members wearing high heals, which should be interesting in itself, male guests to the event are also encouraged to do the same. After all if this event is all about awareness, there’s no better way for a guy to be aware of an issue than by strapping awkward, uncomfortable, yet dazzling heals to his feet. There’s no way that he won’t be thinking about the pain and suffering inflicted upon battered women who are true survivors.
